Based on latest discussions on this forum, and studiing copyright laws, it is necessary to state out new forum mandatory rules, effective immediately, so, here we are.

LINKS TO MUSIC & VIDEOS: what is legal/what is not.
NEW RULES in the forum state:

From now on in our forum users shal NOT POST TOPICS THAT containin the following :
• Requests for or links to MP3s, music videos, or other files of questionable legality
• Bootlegs

So, please do not POST A LINK TO music or videos which does not directly originate from an officially legal site.

An OFFICIALLY LEGAL SITE is: or, universal music, a legitimate music site like MTV or VIVA. The links must be direct and linked only to the approved site. Any links which have copied and transferred the music or videos from an official legal site to ANYWHERE else are NOT OFFICIAL.

• Do not ASK FOR A LINK to music or videos. If there is a legal site for either listening or viewing, xTERNAL will provide the information in the NEWS section of

WHAT YOU CAN DO in the forums: You can DISCUSS a new song or a new video.

WHAT YOU CANNOT DO in the forums: provide illegal links or ask for links, give directions of any kind as to where something might be found (examples: file-sharing, other fansites, etc.). Screen caps will be allowed (within reason) AFTER a video has been made available through an OFFICIAL LEGAL LINK. Fan remixes of songs will be allowed (within reason) after the song has been officially released.

The above restrictions are necessary not because we are being “damn babies” or “. The reason is simply that RAMMSTEIN-EUROPE has made the decision to not be a facilitator of illegal activities involving copyrighted material. The reason for that is also clear. Rammstein’s Management has shown aggressive behaviour in combating copyright infringement.

Anyone who violates the spirit of the aforementioned expansion/explanation of what the RULES mean here as applied to music and videos (and this also includes the "making of videos") will meet up with one of the following consequences:


If you have ANY questions about what may or may not be acceptable here, you can always PM a Moderator and ask first before posting something that might get you in trouble here.

•any links to (or other sharing sites of a similar nature)are generally not allowed.
While some videos like fan made items or spoof animations are allowed, we do not allow linking to youtube. Oftentimes there is/are illegal videos of Rammstein performances to the side of the linked videos. Actual Rammstein Videos which are very illegal to be hosted by that site - therefore we cannot allow links to youtube to be allowed.

So, links to youtube are now allowed - ONLY IF it is a fanmade video by you, and does not contain bootleg footage or footage of live performances or released performances. Stills from photos found on the net are OK. A montage is OK. Clips of released footage are NOT OK.

Please try to understand that sometimes while we may allow a certain individuals fanmade videos, and deny another persons it is usually because the content in it could get the forums in trouble.

Also if some individuals post their fanmade video and it turns out to be bootleg footage that they filmed themselves at a concert and consider that "fanmade" - then we will have to reverse the ruling on allowing fanmade videos PERIOD!

Here is an update on what is considered "fanmade".
Fanmade is fanmade. You did it yourself. Like cut and paste. You creatd everything yourself. No footage filmed by someone else no clips. Still images are OK.
For example:
If you go out and find 6 banana slugs in the yard, dress them up in LAB outfits, and put the skinniest one in a paper boat and play the music to SEEMANN on a kazoo. That is fanmade.

If you have a coverband and you do your own video or you have footage of YOUR band's performance. That is fanmade.

If you have images that you sketched of how you think the video for a song should have been and you put it to music - I think we can allow that.

Use your creativity.

    Even Guns N' Roses would've released an album by now. System of a Down just isn't going to do it man, I'm sorry. And that's ashame, I know.
    GnR haven't released an album in 24 years, I don't consider the Chinese Democracy a GnR album, it was an Axl-project

      Yes, I can see why, though the more I listen to it (and I really appreciate the record btw), the more it seems to me like a genuine GNR album. You can see during this reunion tour that Slash and Duff really seem to like several songs from te record (they played 6/13 songs from Chinese Democracy so far). And if you look up the genesis, several songs date from the late 90's and some even from the mid 90's. In fact we know for sure that 2 songs from the album were already in production before the break-up. Plus the fact that GNR never really was a homogenic band anyway. Appetite for destruction maybe was, but with the Illusions they mixed several genres and invited many people from beyond the band to help out with songs (like Zakk Wylde, Alice Cooper, Shannon Hoon, Teddy ZigZag, West Arkeen, Del James,...)
      But again, I understand you too .

      Meanwhile I'm excited about Rammstein's new album. If things evolve like they did with LIFAD and Pussy we might get a first single already around christmas time. And one or two leaks during the late fall ...

      • I think our first indication regarding the release of the new album, will probably be the tour-dates. It takes almost a year to plan a big Rammstein-tour, and the tour will probably be announced 5-6 months before the first dates.

        If we get a tour-anouncment in October, November or December. We might get a spring release and tour in 2018. If we don't get any announcments before Christmas, then we probably won't get a release in spring. In that case it will be summer (which I highly doubt, because it's a bad time for album sales and indoor shows). If that would be the case, a tour in the Fall of 2018 seems more likely.
